2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This porter has roughly foaming and partially renewable foam. It emits a powerful and delicious aroma of roasted malt with distinct coffee notes. The taste is initially a little water, but quickly reveals the coffee and English licorice on a malty background of roasted character. Not so many special qualities of this porter, only one type of right and good porter who has just what such a one must have

Bottle: Dark dark color with a tan head. Sweet malty aroma with sweet malty roasted tastes. Full bodied with a smooth aftertaste. It’s nice to have a porter that isn’t overly charcoal bitter aftertaste.
